We think the iconic Marilyn Monroe sang it best when she made her breathy statement in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: “A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl’s best friend!” If you’re shopping at jewelry stores, we know that it’s not necessarily for diamonds.
But whether you’re on the hunt for an engagement ring or just a beautiful trinket to show your partner how much you love and appreciate them, it can be tough to make the right choice. It can be even tougher to cough up the full amount up front!
Don’t be blinded by the billions of stones on the market. Our guide to these tasteful jewelry stores has everything you need. No matter the budget, no matter the trinket. You’ve come to the right place to look for your next big birthday, Christmas, or (hopefully!) engagement gift.
The Big One: jewelry stores stocking engagement rings
Let’s just get the most obvious category of jewelry out of the way, alright? A quick browse of any of the jewelry stores listed in this article will show you that engagement rings are by far the biggest category of jewels on the market. And why not? It’s a big decision to make. Choosing the right stone, we mean. Choosing the person you’re going to spend the rest of your life with? That’s easy compared to the rigorous decision-making processes involved in selecting an engagement ring!
We kid, we kid. Still, it’s a nerve-wracking decision. We’re here to make it a little easier for you. Let’s start with these classic, simple, and elegant diamond engagement rings from Danielle Camera. For the budget-conscious, you can shop Diamond Box’s range of engagement rings for under R10 000. Finally, Sunsonite stocks a really robust range of men’s rings. That should get you off to a strong start!
But, perhaps you’re dating someone who’s more into gemstones than diamonds. For the record, diamonds are technically gemstones themselves. But, we’re not here to be pedantic. If you’ve been browsing online jewelry stores for a more colourful engagement ring, then you might be interested in Danielle Camera’s gemstone engagement ring collection or Diamond Box’s vintage ring collection. Both offer a stunning range of gemstones in cool blues, gorgeous greens, and stunning citrines.
The Other Big One: jewelry stores stocking wedding bands
Ok, they said yes – congratulations! Pop the champagne! Call your mother! Then, get onto these jewelry stores and check out your options for wedding rings. Yes, the wedding might be months away, but it’s never too early to start planning these things.
Once again, Diamond Box pulls through with a respectable collection of women’s wedding bands as well as gents’ rings. Danielle Camera stocks a wide range of expertly-crafted wedding bands and cufflinks for men made from precious metals.
Wherever you land up going to shop for engagement and wedding rings, you might notice that things can get…pricey. You know what they say – two months’ salary, at the very least!
